Why Cheat India Review

The story is based in rural locations like Jaunpur, Kota, and Jhansi, where the pressure on the youth aspirants to be engineers, doctors and MBA students, is probably far more than what urban cities students face. Writer-director Soumik Sen isn’t able to give the narrative angle to the film what it deserves. There was potential to make a smart film about our flawed education system but many scenes from the film feel disjointed, owing to the choppy editing and inconsistent screenplay.

It’s upsetting to leave the viewers bored and underwhelmed. Although the supporting actors are fine and have done a good job, the film doesn’t use them right. Emraan Hashmi played his part with required flair. He’s very good in anti-hero roles. He had some practice playing all manner of cheaters and fraudsters but this film can’t seem to decide how to peg him.

Debutant Shreya Dhanwanthary was given more to do than make smitten eyes. The film pretends to give her a pivotal role, but not actually. The film tries to appear foolishly smart.
